Housing Led Feasibility Study for Oxfordshire
Crisis, Oxfordshire County Council and the five district councils have jointly funded and commissioned a feasibility study which will propose how the homelessness and housing system in Oxfordshire could become more ‘housing led’. Housing led approaches or what is also known as ‘rapid rehousing’ is an approach to ending someone’s homelessness by moving them into their own home as soon as possible. It operates under the guiding principle that everyone has a right to a home and does not rely on the condition that someone must be tenancy ‘ready’ before being offered their own home.
This piece of research will form part of a programme of work aiming to answer the question of whether there is a better way for Oxfordshire to deliver services to end homelessness for single people.
The study will take 9 months from December 2019 and is seeking to consult widely. If you want more information or have a view and would like to be involved then please look at the Crisis website.
